    Just like it say... I love this thing...it has great feel, great battery.. Great phone....but..I don't like how much of a pita it is to assign ringtones and such... Remember the app called "files" BRING IT BACK!?!
    SUGGESTIONS FROM OUR MEMBERS? I have maybe 15 mins of hands on time with this device...school me...

    Create a folder on the virtual SD card, label it media. Within that, have ringtone, notification, and alarm folders. Put your sound bytes in their appropriate folders, and then they should populate along with the stock sounds when you make your custom selection. Lots of third party apps to be browsing your phone's files. I prefer root explorer for its appeal to me.

    fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.

    The folders have to be called "ringtones", "notifications", and "alarms". Plural, not singular. These folders can be in any folder, too, though I do the same thing you do - put them in a folder called media.

    I've been using Astro File Explorer myself; it works fine. The only weirdness is that your files are in /storage/emulated/0 (that's a zero, not a letter "o").

    You can do it by connecting the phone by cable to your computer, too...

    I hate that there is no file folder anymore. I've had the phone for 2 months and just realized it a week ago lol. I'm guessing it's because there is no SD card anymore?
    And welcome to the club; it's about time you joined ;-)

    Minimalist controls for the camera, no file browser app, trial period bloatware, rapid release of similar phones... Motorola has a long-standing record of making bad decisions, perpetuated by Verizon on top of it!
